Owner description: There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation, but there is only one place where vacation becomes adventure: Universal Orlando Resort. It is a unique destination featuring two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure, three magnificently themed on-site hotels and a nighttime entertainment complex. It's the only Orlando destination where you are not just entertained - you become part of the most exhilarating entertainment ever created. You can soar above Hogwarts with Harry Potter, swing above the streets with Spider-Man, battle aliens alongside Agent J, and help Shrek save Princess Fiona in Shrek 4-D. Now open: the new, heart-warming and hilarious Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride. And coming soon: Transformers The Ride-3D. Universal Orlando Resort is part of NBCUniversal, a Comcast company.

The queue was relatively long but you would hardly notice as when you enter the castle they have many pictures on the wall that move. We had a good time identifying which of the pictures moved and which did not. You would even meet the three main characters in 3D hologram. Photo opportunity with Singers before and after the ride. Enjoyable!

I've been wanting to visit this place for a while and glad I got to see it. It's a good scene with the Hogwarts castle. I have visited this place twice recently, the first time was very busy and crammed and was hard to visit the shops but he 2nd time must better a lot quieter. There is a restaurant but the food is terrible fish and pasties but there is a bar but expensive. I purchased a butterbeer which is like American cream soda with fake cream on top to get the mug it was 10 dollars. There was a show in the wand shop bit of a wait and only lasted 20 mins or something then you go into the shop and can buy wands at 48 dollars. Only did one ride and not much of a que it kept moving inside was just like being in Hogwarts with moving pictures and the sorting hat.
The ride was good felt like flying on a broomstick it moved and tilted you forwards and backwards. I was kind of hoping there be more of the world but still good and a lot of detail.

Everything is done so well, was amazing to see Universal Studios would have to be the best theme park in Orlando!

Amazing and so much better than Disney, rides are brilliant and the technology is so today! The whole place immerses you into Hogwarts! Get an early entry pass via Virgin if you can well worth it and have the place to your self...

This was AWESOME! the ride was insane, not too scary but very thrilling. The 3D was insane. You can get photos outside with some characters from the movies and the castle makes a really cool backdrop. It was very surreal walking down the street in Harry Potter world, the staff played their parts very well.
